Is Empathy Enough? Racial Justice and the Moral Imagination in the 21st Century

Join the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture and the Fordham Theatre Program for 

Is Empathy Enough? Racial Justice and the Moral Imagination in the 21st Century

Monday, February 24, 2014, 6 p.m.
Fordham University, Pope Auditorium
113 West 60th Street, New York NY 10023

Racial justice remains elusive a half century after the monumental Civil Rights Act of 1964. Where law falls short, could an enriched culture of empathy produce the needed transformation in the American conscience?

Join us for a forum that mines the arts, history and theology to explore the power—and weakness—of empathy as a force for social change.

Pun Bandhu, award-winning actor and founding member of the Asian American Performers Action Coalition
Ruben Rosario Rodriguez, author of Racism and God Talk: A Latino/a Perspective 
Ariela Gross, author of What Blood Won’t Tell: A History of Race on Trial in America 
Aimee Meredith Cox, Department of African and African-American Studies, Fordham University

RSVP to [email protected]
Free and open to the public

This forum coincides with the Fordham Theatre Program’s production of

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 
By Jackie Sibblies Drury
Directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh
